Critics are slamming the GOP committee and Donald Trump Jr. for their apparent attempts to stop boycotts of Bud Light over its partnership with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) deleted a tweet and fundraising page where people could donate money and receive a drink koozie, leading to accusations of hypocrisy and cowardice.
Trump Jr. defended Anheuser-Busch, Bud Light’s parent company, on his podcast last week, calling for an end to the boycott while citing the company is “iconic” and that it has a history of donations to Republican candidates. However, some conservative critics have criticized Trump Jr. for not standing up against corporate wokeism.
Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth broke his silence on the controversy over the boycott last week, saying that the company “never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people.”
It is disappointing to see the GOP committee and Donald Trump Jr. bowing down to the woke mob and attempting to stop boycotts of Bud Light over its partnership with a transgender activist.
